What Happened to Freedom?????

OMG!!!! So...in lieu of upcoming elections and what not I have been doing alot of research on candidates, issues, etc. First and foremost I am definitely not one of those political nerds LOL I never really cared too much for politics but I have just recently watched two documentaries that has definitely changed my mind!!!!

We have been taught that we are living in a free country--America...home of the FREE. But is it still free???? How much of our freedoms have been stolen from us for the sake of "security?" With the Patriot Act allowing the government to listen to our phone calls, search our home, search our computers in SECRECY and NOT TELLING us (hellooooooo what happened to our right to face our accused? or due process???) it's only getting worse!!!!! Too many Americans have lazily sat by (including myself) and allowed the government to come in and steal our God-given freedom and liberties all under the mask of "national security." I agree with Patrick Henry when he said "give me liberty of give me DEATH!" Our Founding Fathers risked their very lives for our freedom...and here we are rather be slaves and comfortable than FIGHT for our freedom!!!!

So...one of the videos is called "Freedom to Facism" and it's mainly shows how the income tax is NOT LEGAL!! Not one law can be found!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!??!?! I never knew this but they have talked to IRS officials, former commissioners, etc and not one time can they ever prove there is a law!!!!
It also talks about the National ID Card Act that is being pushed right now by our government and hopes to pass in May 2008!!! What is it??????? It's a card that's linked to our drivers license that without it you cannot fly on airplanes, go into federal buildings, OR hold a bank account!! Soon they're hoping to make it where you can't even PURCHASE WITHOUT THIS CARD!!!!!! Christians out there, does this sound familiar?!?!?!?!?!??!
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might BUY OR SELL, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name"
-Revelation 13:16-17
Now whether you believe in the Bible or not as Americans WHYYYY would you want the government monitoring your every freaking move??? They'll have a record of everything you purchase, everywhere you go, all your bank records EVERYTHING!!! And with technology today all they have to do is delete your number for your card and you will have NOTHING!!! NOTHING!!!! home of the free??!?!?!?!??!?! yeah right!!! We will be SLAVES to our government. All the lives that have been sacrificed for our freedom will have been for NOTHING!!!
This isn't something that MIGHT happening...it's happening RIGHT NOW!! Right this moment legislatures in Washington are fighting for this and are hoping to pass this in MAY 2008!!!!!!!!

So the next video is called "Hacking Democracy" and it shows the flaws in the computerized technology that counts our votes and how EASY it is to HACK and CHANGE THE VOTES!!!!! Anyone who votes by computer in our country needs to check this video out and GET INVOLVED!!!! If you think your votes are safe, think again.

I know this is cliche but for lack of better words "don't take my word for it." RESEARCH all of this yourself!!! As Americans it is our DUTY and our RIGHT to stand up to the government!!! One of my favorite movies "V for Vendetta" said, "The people should not fear its government, the government should fear its people!" AMEN!!!

As American citizens I encourage you to watch these videos so you will be INFORMED of what our government is trying to hide from us. They're long, but worth it!!! It's time we stopped being idle and started forcing our government to listen to its people!!!

Thanks Felicia!
It is nice to know there are others out there opening the eyes of American citizens to the constant threat of our freedoms. The threat that doesn't come from somewhere in the middle east but from our own capitol, Washington D.C.
What is happening in the USA scares the 'you know what' out of me but I really don't know where to start to make things better. I plan on sitting down and watching the links you provided and see where to go from there.
Thanks again

Hi. I appreciate reading someone else's blog that shows they are thinking/researching when concerning politics. I also think a federal ID program is a bad idea for many of the reasons you laid out. However, I doubt they can't already get the information they seek through the Patriot Act. You will probably be flamed for putting your input on 2peas but I wouldn't sweat it. Having your eyes opened to what has been going on around you will usually make good people react in this manner. You want to share invaluable information. Good luck in your search for a candidate that represents what you approve of. I suggest checking out the Constitution party.
